It got worse.
The episode begins right where it left off which is in the middle of the altercation. After Dennis got between Porsha and Gina, Porsha swung on him. Dennis is held back. Chaos ensues. Storm and Darlene join into the madness. Security is trying to break it up. Porsha starts screaming and throwing plates in Dennis’ direction and asking where Gina is. She throws microphones. As she cries, Simon pulls her away to a couch. Porsha breaks down crying. She demands that Dennis be arrested.
In a green screen interview, Porsha says she just got upset because she had to relive the trauma of Dennis cheating on her while she was pregnant.
Producers take a moment to inform viewers that Dennis and Gina headed to Cancun with Dennis’ female guest after the altercation. And producers learned that Porsha texted all of her family members telling them to not discuss what happened on camera.
Weirdly, Porsha does another green screen interview saying that her family isn’t saying anything because they just like to sweep everything under the rug.
A producer feels the need to step in.
The next day, Porsha and her family carry on with spiritual activities like the altercation never happened. A producer steps in and calls them out for this. But Porsha refuses to allow this topic to be discussed. And she’s done with the scene.
The family comes together for one last dinner in Mexico. Of course, Dennis and Gina aren’t there. Storm also stayed behind after all of the drama. Aunt Liz says it’s sad what happened because she felt Porsha and Dennis were so close to a breakthrough. But it wasn’t okay for people to bring up that Dennis cheated. What happened needs to stay in the past because they put Dennis in a position where he felt like he needed to defend himself. And he also felt like his mother was attacked.
Porsha says she was just really triggered when his cheating was brought up. But she apologizes for getting stuck in the past and not being focused on her future. She starts crying.
Mama Diane gets a recap of the drama from Porsha.
After the family returns from the trip, Porsha goes to her mother’s place to update her on all of the drama that happened in Mexico. She says Dennis invited another woman to make her jealous. Then Dominique brought up the fact that Dennis cheated while Porsha was pregnant. So she got upset, Storm had her back and Dennis told Storm to, “Shut the f*ck up, b*tch.” Producers then flash back to Dennis telling Storm, “Shut the f*ck up, bro.” Regardless, Porsha says she was really heated after Dennis clapped back at Storm.
She says while they were arguing, Dennis grabbed her like he thought she was about to attack Gina. So “all h*ll broke loose.” And she “kind of blacked out.”
In a green screen interview, Porsha says she shouldn’t have responded the way she did. And she is taking responsibility for her actions.
Is Porsha ready to carry on her grandfather’s legacy?
Porsha and PJ visit Aunt Liz at the new Hosea Williams facility. They discuss the drama. Liz says that Porsha needs to think of her daughter because Porsha doesn’t want PJ to grow up and see Porsha doing things like this. Porsha has to think about her legacy. She doesn’t need to let her friends instigate drama in her life. In her opinion, Porsha isn’t ready to carry her grandfather’s legacy just yet.
When it comes to her image as an activist, Porsha doesn’t think she needs to do any damage control because “families fight.” And she doesn’t want to be placed in a box.
Dennis discusses the altercation.
Gina and Dennis talk about what happened at one of the hot dog restaurants he owns. In a green screen interview, Dennis says that Porsha lunged at Gina.

As for Gina, she thinks Porsha is in love with Dennis and Simon.
